It's loud, it's crowded, but something about Le Bus has always kept it upbeat. The longtime Philly bakery and restaurant got its start many years ago selling out of a van at the University of Pennsylvania, and the quality has always remained high. It's mostly comfort food, but with a variety of influences, such as the Thai turkey salad or the char-grilled lemon rosemary chicken. Le Bus is a good choice for a Manayunk lunch, as the menu is reasonably priced, and their Cuban
and turkey Reuben sandwiches go well with midafternoon beers.
